    December 3, 2016 - A 40th Birthday Celebration (River North, Chicago IL): Small glass, brief note. Ripe black fruit that was very fresh for its age and the vintage. Very dense, balanced and long. My favorite 1976 Bordeaux of the day.

    November 3, 2016 - St Emillion First Growths (Chez Bruce, London): Deep full garnet. Lovely nose, gently autumnal. Gorgeous on the palate. There's a sweetness to the fruit. Nuanced, mellow and with a vibrancy too. Long and glorious. Just spot-on. *****

    July 6, 2016 - Base of neck. Deep ruby with bricking rim. Dusty nose with tobacco and cedar. Good depth, length and interest, but somewhat drying and lacking in fruit. Quality for the vintage, but this was nowhere near the '78 we had a couple of years ago. Drink now, although I can't see this dropping off the cliff any time soon. (91 Very good wine)

    May 26, 2016 - Older Bordeaux Evening with Friends (Les Nomades - Chicago IL): Base neck fill. Ripe fruit throughout, slightly sweet, nicely fresh. I like the concentration best here, with moderate acidity, length and nuance, but certainly a star for the vintage.
